Game Notes

Game Summary

The Mad Dogs home opener in the Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium had the potential to be an exciting match against the B.C. Lions. However, the “beware of dogs” sign hung out front last week after a close loss to Calgary did not seem to intimidate B.C. They came to the Liberty Bowl fully intending to leave with a 2-0 record. B.C. dominated the first half scoring with touchdowns by Cory Philpot running in a from the 3, Stephan Ptaszek on a 20 yard pass, and Darren Flutie on a 32 yard pass. Memphis got on the board in the first half with a single from a missed field goal and a made field goal from the 40-yard line. The score at the end of the first half was B.C. 20 – Memphis 4. Memphis opened the scoring in the second half with Damon Allen throwing the second franchise touchdown pass to Eddie Brown. The play went 32 yards and was converted by Peter Gardere. The Mad Dogs scored the next two points of the game as Chris Gardner missed two field goals from 49 and 51 yards. Cory Philpot recorded his second rushing touchdown of the game on a 10 yard run. Lui Passaglia added to his all-time point leading total with his third convert of the game and a 16 yard field goal to round out the scoring. B.C. managed to maintain their perfect record beating the Memphis Mad Dogs 31 to 13 before 14,278 in the first franchise home game.
